Chania: Wine, Food, and Sunset Tour with 3-Course Dinner

1. Chania: Wine, Food, and Sunset Tour with 3-Course Dinner

Let us introduce you to authentic Crete and our local traditions and customs by experiencing Chania like a local. Follow us on this late afternoon sunset tour through the old medieval town of Chania and the old port and discover all the hidden gems the city has to offer! Begin your amazing tour by meeting your local guide in front of the Municipal Market, the locals’ main meeting point for hanging out. Being built more than a century ago, the also-known as Dimotiki Agora was established to celebrate Crete’s unification with Greece. Through the windy cobblestone back streets, you’ll explore the lesser-known parts of the Venetial Old Port while hearing tales and myths about unique old buildings, famous locals, and rebellions, and keep in mind that although these stories sound like fiction, they are so real! On your way, we’ll show you funky, alternative bars where you can hang out later, and visit favourite-local stores such as a cooperative that is dedicated to the preservation of locally produced crafts and edibles and supports local producers and artisans directly. Then, you’ll head to a perfect vantage point from where you can enjoy the most captivating sunset with the old port in the foreground. Watch the sun slowly make its descent and post some of your once-in-life Instagram stories from here! As you capture the last rays of light, we’ll roam through Chania’s labyrinth streets to a secret garden of a historic building for a local wine and food appreciation feast. Participate in an exclusive wine tasting session of exceptional local wines with international awards, presented by a qualified sommelier, while pairing it with a three-course organic gourmet dinner. Here is the right place to learn everything about the Cretan wine varieties, and the Cretan cuisine, one of the healthiest worldwide. For sweet lovers, you’ll be glad to know that after the wine tasting there is something more sinful on this tour: ice cream! We’ll introduce you to the most delicious ice cream ever, made from fresh local sheep milk, nuts, fruits, and other ingredients. Your Chania by night tour wouldn’t be completed without drinking a nightcap in a local-favorite venue by sipping plenty of “raki” shots, our local spirit based on grapes, and mingling with locals. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the best out of your trip to Crete.

Our adventure was incredible! We were picked up on time, with 6 of us in the Land Rover. Our host Mike was very funny and knowledgeable. We had some amazing views as we drove up the dirt path up the mountain, with the most spectacular sunset at the top with fruit and champagne. The food at the taverna was nice. Being in the back of the Land Rover wasn’t great, on the bench rather than a proper seat, but we each switched around every stop so it wasn’t so bad.

My wife and I had a wonderful afternoon with Evie. We toured the rustic village, prepared some food and dined outdoors in the courtyard overlooking the valley and could see Heraklion off in the distance. There were just the two of us and it was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Great safari through the Dikti Mountains. Our guide (Giorgos) was very funny and told us a lot about culture and history. At about 1,000 m the sunset is observed, while (funny) photos are taken. Food, wine, water and tasting of raki and olive oil were just great.

Incredible tour of Chania followed by one of the best meals of the trip. The sunset location was perfect. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us additional great recommendations for the rest of our trip.

it was an amazing experience. Evie was an exceptional host and the food was amazing! ended up being a private tour which was great! would highly recommend.
